Planted variety Karina. Will there be pollination from decorative honeysuckle?

Thanks for the info and nice clean site.

Hello, dear.
Last year I purchased 3 honeysuckle bushes. Two had to give this year's harvest, they woke up in the spring perfectly, started to pick up the leaves, and then some kind of leaf drying began, now on the leaves, or rust, or something else. Good your site, but I would like to read about diseases and methods of struggle in honeysuckle. Sprayed the drug from spider mites, because there was a cobweb.

Tell me, please, if you had to plant bushes in the following way: honeysuckle-currants-honeysuckle, will this affect the yield? Between the bushes of honeysuckle distance 2.8 m.

at this distance - no

What will please honeysuckle
In the last 10-15 years, edible honeysuckle bushes have appeared on many dachas. They bloom beautifully and stably supply the owners with very useful and tasty fruits, and moreover before many other berries. Honeysuckle gardeners happy and unpretentious.
It is possible to grow up culture on slightly shaded sites. If the soil is acidic there, at least one month before planting it, it is necessary to sprinkle it with lime or chalk: 500-600 g per 1 square meter. m
Planting material is easiest to get by dividing an overgrown bush. This method provides high
survival rate of seedlings. For plants to bear fruit, they must be at least 2-3. It is better to plant honeysuckle according to the 1 × 1.5 m scheme. The pits should be 0.5 m deep and about 60 cm in diameter. It is advisable to fill not very large stones at the bottom, but 8 soil, which the roots will be filled with, add some organic fertilizer. Formative pruning can be done only 1 time in 2-3 years.
Already 3-4-year-old bush of honeysuckle gives 1.5-3 kg of berries. They are quite useful in any form. Only 1-2 tsp. per day significantly improve well-being.

Useful but demanding
I love honeysuckle! This is a very valuable berry, which improves the strength and permeability of blood vessels. Its berries are beneficial to those suffering from cardiovascular diseases, atherosclerosis and hypertension.
Young branches of honeysuckle brew, pour the broth into the bath, it is very helpful in the treatment of articular rheumatism.
But the main thing is that the honeysuckle is a very fast-growing and early-growing berry, with high winter hardiness. And very early, I gather the harvest in early June. It is completely indifferent to returnable spring frosts, but to the conditions it is demanding. Dry and too wet places are not for honeysuckle. She loves the sun and wind protection.
If you decide to plant this plant, it is better to do it in the fall. Planting in the spring is less desirable - in this case, the honeysuckle is very sick. Bushes planted at a distance of one and a half meters from each other. The base of the stem when planting a little bit deep. I propagate the plant with lignified and green cuttings and layering.
Easy care - loosening, destruction of weeds. Watering in the ring grooves at a distance of half a meter from the bush. Then - mulching. Top dressing-spring and early summer.

The berry season at summer houses each year opens blue honeysuckle. Strawberries have not ripened yet, currants are green, prickly and inhospitable gooseberries. And on the lush honeysuckle bushes, oblong ripe berries, soaked with a gray-haze, are already visible ...
This plant in our gardens came from the Far East - it was the local inhabitants who in the 19th century began to transplant this prolific berry shrub from the taiga closer to the house. In the XX century professional gardeners became interested in honeysuckle. Today we are attracted to these berries by their healing power. They support the energy of the heart and the strength of the circulatory system. The pectins contained in the berries bind harmful substances in the human body, radionuclides and remove them naturally, with benefits for our health. There are monosaccharides here, there is ascorbine, which strengthens the immune system, and, most importantly, it is perhaps the active phenolic compounds that keep the thinnest blood vessels in operation - capillaries, including those that feed the brain. So, those who regularly eat honeysuckle berries are not afraid of sclerosis!
The best varieties of garden honeysuckle were left in our memory by Professor Maria Nikolaevna Plekhanova from All-Russian
Institute of Plant Industry. N.I. Vavilova. She visited all corners of Russia, where honeysuckle grows in a wild form, and successfully carried out its cultivation.
The taste of these berries is different - sour, sweet, juicy or dryish, according to their consistency they are tender, dense, leathery ... Each honeysuckle variety is characteristic
fruit shape. There are some varieties whose berries resemble ancient Greek amphoras! One of them is called - Amphora. M.N. Plekhanova led him along with colleague A.V. Kondrikova near Petersburg, at Pavlovskaya VIR station.
Professional fruit growers of the Leningrad region in collaboration with scientists and lecturers for many years conducted a variety test of this important garden crop, so that amateurs know which berries are the most productive, unpretentious in the conditions of country life. When grown in the Luga district of the Leningrad Region, the Morena variety was in the first place in terms of yield: on average per year it produced 39 centners of berries per hectare. In the second place in terms of yield, the Pavlovskaya variety is 29 centners per hectare. On the third - the Amphora / l Blue Spindle varieties (24 centners per hectare). The maximum yield for the years of testing - 85 centners per hectare - was obtained again on the berries of the Morena variety.
And how big are the honeysuckle berries? The largest in the Amphora variety - 1.6 g. V variety Morena - 1.4 g. According to the tasters, the most delicious berries are Honeysuckle Violet.
In the dacha garden, four bushes are enough for us for berries - a couple of different varieties.

Beautifully write you would write books!

A few years ago, I became interested in sowing honeysuckle seeds. When, after 3-4 years, the seedlings had the first berries, they tasted them, selected one with the best berries, sowed again, and picked them again. The last selection was made from 150 seedlings - singled out one with sweet fruits. My wife, Valentina Sergeyevna, first tasted it and immediately offered to expand the planting by removing old varieties. Then on
the tasting was attended by familiar gardeners, they also liked sweet berries very much. I share the green cuttings, I hope the variety will not disappear. And I named it in honor of the first taster - my wife - Valentine.

Bullfinches birds are very beautiful, but, alas, and harm is harmful.
They got into our hands to pluck the kidneys from the honeysuckle. One bush is almost ruined. Now, in late autumn, above the bushes, we install lightweight structures from bars and a simple fishing net. Now the bushes for the birds out of reach!

Description of varieties

The steady and lush shrub with a height of up to 4 m has a dense crown formed by hollow shoots and green leaves of an egg-shaped form. At the end of spring, a long flowering of the culture is observed, in which flowers of various color bloom, exuding a light scent with a sweetish hint. At the end of the summer there is a phase of fruiting.

The brightest representatives of the form:

Planting Tatar honeysuckle in the open ground

Planting honeysuckle Tatar includes several main stages.

Site selection. Undemanding culture with a luxurious crown perfectly developed as in light shading, and in sunny areas. Culture in the wild gives preference to loose, drained soils with a good fertile layer and a neutral reaction. Can grow on saline soil.

Preparation of planting material. In order for the shrub to develop quickly and enjoy good health, it is necessary to purchase high-quality seedlings. The best option would be to buy a two-year planting material with 3-4 well-developed skeletal branches in a specialized store or nursery. Sapling should be carefully examined for the presence of damaged or dry shoots, roots.

Terms and technology of landing in open ground. The planting dates depend on the root system of the seedling: if it is open, it is better to carry out the work in early autumn, and for the closed one the whole growing season will do. The landing is carried out according to the following scheme:

  1. Planting pits with dimensions of 40x40 cm are dug 5 days before planting.
  2. The distance between the holes is maintained from 1.5-3 m, depending on the goals of planting and height of the selected grade.
  3. At the bottom of the drainage is placed a layer of 5 cm of broken brick or gravel.
  4. 1.5 kg of compost, 50 g of superphosphate and some ash are poured onto the drainage layer.
  5. At the time of planting, the pit is filled with water, after which a small mound is made of a substrate composed of a mixture of sod land, peat and sand in a ratio of 3: 1: 1.
  6. A seedling is placed on the tubercle, the roots of which are laid out.
  7. Honeysuckle sprinkled with soil mixture so that the neck slightly protruded above its level.
  8. The soil in the wheel circle is compacted, watered and mulched with sawdust or peat.

Care activities are quite simple and will not take a lot of time and effort from the gardener, which is ideal for busy people who want to decorate the garden with original and spectacular plants.

Water treatments. Regular watering is necessary only for young plants. Over the years, it will take 2-3 times for the entire season to moisten the tree trunk at the rate of 10 liters per bush.

Loosening and mulching. To loosen the soil under the honeysuckle is recommended after each irrigation, which will ensure free air circulation and full development of the plant. In the middle of autumn, it is recommended to mulch the stem around the trunk, which will protect the root system from the negative effects of winter frosts.

Top dressing. During the growing season, you should feed the plant three times with various fertilizers:

  1. For the first feeding, which is carried out before the awakening of the kidneys, suitable nitrogen fertilizers (urea, ammonium nitrate).
  2. Phosphate-potassium complexes should be introduced into the phase of budding under the shrub.
  3. After completion of fruiting, wood ash is introduced under the digging of the tree trunk.

Crop. The shrub is pruned before the start of sap flow or in the middle of autumn. When pruning shoots are shortened by part. Sanitary haircut is carried out only from 6 years of life of the honeysuckle, when all dry and damaged shoots are cut.

Diseases, pests and methods of dealing with them. Tartar honeysuckle is often subjected to attacks by aphids, spider mites, scythos, leaf beetles. If you identify one or more of these pests should immediately spraying the crown insecticidal solution according to the instructions indicated on the package. Among the diseases are powdery mildew, spotting and mosaic, which must be controlled by spraying with copper-containing fungicides.

As preventive measures, in order to prevent harmful organisms from honeysuckle damage, it is recommended to carry out spring spraying with Bordeaux mixture and timely remove dead leaves in the autumn period, which serves as an excellent bedding for pests and pathogens.


Honeysuckle Tatar (Lonicera tatarica) can reproduce both in a generative and vegetative way, which is considered the most productive and effective.

Cuttings. The procedure is usually carried out in the summer using cuttings that are cut from green shoots 12 cm in length with 2-3 knots. The slices on the cuttings are processed by a growth stimulator, after which they are submerged at an angle into the substrate of peat and sand. The container is contained under the film to rooting cuttings. For the winter the box is moved to the room. Planting in the garden is carried out next spring.

Reproduction by layering.A quick way in which three to four year old shoots are buried in the grooves and rooted during the summer. Separation of the parent specimen only for the next year.

Choosing a landing site

Tatar honeysuckle (lat. Lonícera tatárica) is a deciduous ornamental shrub with a very dense crown. It reaches a height of 1–3 m. It is characterized by rapid growth - up to 35 cm per year.

Its leaves are ovate, 3–6 cm long, dark green in color, sometimes with a blue, bluish tinge. Blossoms fragrant, medium-sized, pale yellow or white flowers. The flowering period is in May-June. The plant is a honey plant. Bright red fruits appear in July-August In total, there are about 250 species of honeysuckle plants. If your goal of planting Tatar honeysuckle is not only its decorative qualities, but also the fruits, and you are interested in the question of whether it is edible or not, then the berries of this type are inedible.

Because of this, the people called them wolf berries. For the preparation of jam, jam, drinks and dessert dishes use different types (Altai, Kamchatka) and edible honeysuckle varieties ("Vitamin", "Blue Bird", "Dessert", "Blue Spindle", etc.), the fruits of which contain vitamin C , carotene, sugars and other beneficial substances.

They taste sour and sour-sweet. Edible fruits are usually blue or black in color. Inedible painted in bright shades of red and orange.

Tatar honeysuckle belongs to undemanding plants - it can grow on any soil and under any conditions: in gas pollution, shade, drought and frost down to –34 ° C. However, in order to achieve the greatest decorativeness of the shrub, you should follow some recommendations on its planting and farming techniques.

The best and most lush flowering can be admired if you plant a shrub in a well-lit area or in light shade. The less light will fall on the plant, the worse and smaller it will bloom.

Honeysuckle prefers to grow in loose fertile soil, which must be well drained beforehand. It can tolerate saline soils, but does not grow on heavy, too wet and poor soils. Also, it should not be planted in the lowlands, where there are frequent water stasis, and in areas where the earth dries out quickly. Groundwater at the landing site should be no closer than 1 m.

The optimum pH level of the soil is 7.5–8.5.

Selection of seedlings when buying

To get a beautiful and healthy honeysuckle Tatar, to carry out its successful planting and care, the first thing you need to choose successful seedlings.

To do this, use these tips.:

  1. Go shopping at a specialty store.where the consultant can provide you with all the necessary information about the plant you are purchasing.
  2. Buy for planting two-year seedlingshaving 3-4 branches that have already reached a length of 30-40 cm and a thickness of 5 mm at the base.
  3. In the store carefully inspect all parts of the plant.: from top to root. They should not be dried or damaged places. The branches should bend well. They must be with the kidneys.

Planting rules seedlings

If you purchased a sapling with an open root system, then it should be planted in September. It is at this time that the plant falls into a state of rest and will be able to endure winter favorably.

Saplings with a closed root system can be planted during the entire growing season. The transfer method is well suited for this.

Wells need to prepare for 3-5 days before landing. They should be dug 40 cm long, 40 cm wide and 40 cm deep. The optimal distance between plants is 1.5–2 m for varieties with low growth and 2.5–3 m for high varieties. At the bottom of the landing pit to put a 5-centimeter layer of drainage. For him use broken bricks, gravel, expanded clay and other materials.

In the hole make a soil mixture of this composition:

  • turf ground (3 parts),
  • peat or humus (1 part),
  • river sand (1 part).
Fertilizers are also added to the soil.:

  • compost (2 buckets),
  • superphosphate (50 g),
  • ash (1 kg).
If the soil is acidic, then the acidity should be reduced by adding lime (200 g / 1 sq. M). Landing pits plentifully water.

In the center of the hole make a small earthen mound, which put a sapling. If the root system is open, the roots should be carefully distributed over the pit.

Immediately after watering, the ground in the wheel circle is mulched. To do this, use sawdust, peat, straw or other materials.

Care Tips

Care for shrubs will be minimal: watering, feeding, pruning, if necessary, treatment of diseases and parasites. The more thorough the care, the more decorative the plant will be. Although, again, honeysuckle can grow and with rare signs of attention to it, it will simply be less beautiful.

Watering, loosening, mulching

Only planted a seedling in the first year of his life should be watered regularly. In the future, you will need 2-3 irrigation per season. In the hot period, you must use a bucket of water for each bush. After watering, it is advisable to loosen the soil in a circle at a depth of 20 cm. Every autumn, the bush must be mulched. The mulching procedure will protect the root system from frost and retain moisture in the soil in the spring.

Fertilize honeysuckle recommended three times during the growing season:

  • in early spring, before the kidneys advance, with preparations containing nitrogen (20–30 g per 1 sq. m),
  • before flowering - with complex preparations (for example, Kemira-Universal, 20 g per 10 l of water),
  • after fruiting in the fall - wood ashes (200 g per 1 sq. m for digging).

Pruning shrubs can be in the fall, after the leaves fall, and in the spring, before the buds bloom. As a rule, they follow standard guidelines when pruning - leave 1/3 of the shoots.

Old bushes should be rejuvenated by cutting out dying and weak shoots. This procedure is carried out once every 2-3 years.

Annual sanitary pruning is done on plants over 6 years old. Old, dry, diseased, damaged branches are removed, as well as those that are too close to the soil. Shrubs tolerate a trim haircut well, they retain their shape for quite a long time.

Pest and disease control

The defeat of diseases and harmful insects is the most vulnerable spot of most species of honeysuckle, and Tatar in particular.

Therefore, it is necessary to introduce preventive measures and know the methods by which you can overcome the infection, in case of its occurrence.

The most commonly attacked plants are:

  • honeysuckle aphid - sucking pest capable of destroying the decorativeness of the shrub, drinking the juice from its leaves and shoots,
  • spider moth and honeysuckle mite - a sucking enemy who is able to destroy a plant
  • shitovki and false shield - as a result of their malicious activity, shoots shrink and bend, the plant stops growing,
  • leaf beetles - parasites gnawing leaves,
  • cadren tracks - cause heavy damage to the foliage of honeysuckle.
To combat the pest invasion in the initial stage, spraying with insecticidal plants (decoction or infusion of dandelion, garlic, tobacco, hot pepper) is used. With a strong infection resorted to spraying chemicals: "Aktellik", "Aktara", "Fitoverm", "Konfidor" and others.

  • various kinds of spotting,
  • powdery mildew,
  • mosaic.
Fungal diseases can be cured with copper-containing drugs and fungicides. From viruses, the plant can not be saved.

Tatar honeysuckle tolerates especially extreme cold, and flowers and leaves can withstand temperatures as low as –8 ° C.

Therefore, the bushes do not need special measures before the winter period. Only young plants up to 2 years old should preferably be covered with spruce leaves.

Features reproduction cuttings

Tatar honeysuckle reproduces in 4 ways:

  • grafting,
  • layering
  • dividing the bush
  • seeds.
The most popular and simple is the method of grafting. Cuttings are cut from strong healthy shoots 10 cm long. It will be better to root those that were cut off with a “heel” - a small piece of bark from the mother plant.

Cuttings need to be watered, sprayed and periodically opened. Roots should appear in 2–3 weeks.

In the fall, planting young plants in open ground is not recommended - they may not survive the frost. It is better to cover the box with spruce branches and place it in a protected place.

On the site where the honeysuckle will grow constantly, the young should be planted, already when the weather is warm enough in spring. If reproduction was carried out correctly, then flowering should be expected in a year.

Application in landscape design

The most common use of honeysuckle is planting in hedges. They love to use it for landscaping city streets, parks, alleys, streets.

However, the plant also looks great as a tapeworm. It can be landed at the dacha near the fence or at home, on the background of the lawn. Good plant looks and in the foreground of other ornamental crops, herbaceous, perennial plants.

Biological signs and varieties of plants

Honeysuckle Capricole prefers well-moistened soil and timely care, which begins immediately after planting is completed. It is recommended to grow all varieties in partial shade - it is recommended to bring the plant to sunlight for at least a few hours a day. But it also grows quite well in deep shadow. It is well tolerated as alkaline (although on very alkaline soils it sometimes starts to get sick), and acidic soils. Proper care ensures the perfect appearance of the shrub.

  • Best of all, honeysuckle grows on slightly acidic and neutral soils, a necessary condition is sufficient moisture, the humus content is at least 2.5%. Does not tolerate excessive moisture, close location of groundwater, strong shading.
  • The buds are mixed, generative-vegetative, located in the axils of the leaves, one above the other in two or four pieces. They are narrow, tetrahedral, with two pairs of outer scales.

Among the many plants to create a landscape honeysuckle Tatar takes a worthy place. There are many reasons for this, one of which is the unpretentiousness of the plant and its rapid growth. However, the cultural form is represented by several varieties, different in decorative qualities. Creating a composition depends on the knowledge of these features.

The plant normally grows at a temperature of even - 15 degrees. Growth is moderate. If other flowers and varieties grow alongside, then they can climb and continue their growth and development already on them. Flowers are very fragrant (especially at night), which attracts pollinator butterflies. Actively produce fruits, berries, but, however, bear fruit only after a hot summer.

Honeysuckle Tatar planting and care

Plot should choose and prepare in advance. It is better to choose a sunny place where there are no drafts. Honeysuckle will not grow on swampy soils. On clay without good drainage, the results of cultivation will also not please.

  • However, even with excellent care will not bloom every year. If desired, Japanese honeysuckle can be grown in indoor conditions.
  • ('Belgica') 'Belgica'
  • Exquisitely colored
  • Honeysuckle

The most successful reproduction of honeysuckle occurs lignified cuttings, layering, slightly worse seeds. The main disadvantage of seed multiplication is that the best qualities of the propagated variety (for example, large-fruited) will inevitably be lost.

Winter hardiness is high: the flowers are not damaged by frost to –5 ... -7 degrees. It has a very short dormant period and with a long fall in December it can bloom or significantly reduce its frost resistance.

Kidney stipules in honeysuckle are spliced ​​between themselves and with petioles, so they form a kind of circle or disk.

The cuttings are carried out both with young shoots in the summer, and lignified cuttings, cut off at the beginning of winter and stored until spring in the copse. The substrate for the germination of cuttings is a mixture of sand and peat. The cuttings are treated with a root formers, they can be heteroauxin, and placed at an angle of 45 degrees in the seedling box, covering the top with a film to create a microclimate in the greenhouse.
